Advertisements I'm moving into a new building that is wired for DirecTV (meaning I don't need a receiver to get the stripped-down DirecTV package the building negotiated - just plug into the coax plug and that's it). However, I'm able to get a receiver and upgrade the package. I mentioned to DirecTV that I will be using with my stand-alone Tivo Series 2 with their basic receiver. They said that since my building has a multi-unit account, the signal that is pumped into each unit is 'different' than normal DirecTV signals and it won't work with my Tivo without a 'converter kit' that I can conveniently purchase from them for $150. Huh? I thought stand-alones worked with all satellite systems? Anyone ever heard of this?
